Winter at Casa Buena Vista

Winter is a great time to visit Casa Buena Vista.

You may not be aware that it is at this time of year that the oranges and lemons are ripening on the trees, making the valley come alive with colour. With temperatures now more bearable, try one of the many walks through the fruit groves to other villages up and down the valley or perhaps to Lake Beznar.

There are plenty of days when the temperatures are up around 20 degrees C even in the depths of winter, making al fresco eating on the terrace or a dip in the sea a possibility even on Christmas or New Years Day (we have done both!).

The view of the Sierra Nevada mountains from the terrace is also at it's most dramatic, with snow-capped Malhacen (the highest peak in Spain) facing you and dominating the valley landscape. This also opens up other possible activities, with winter sports in the mountains making a great day out. Most activities are available on an ad hoc / daily basis and most equipment can be hired. A morning or afternoon sledging at Hoya De La Mora is great fun for adults and children alike, followed by hot chocolate with Baileys in the cafe. Guided snow treks of a length to suit your requirements can also be arranged, with transport provided from the Lecrin Valley if required.

Finally, Casa Buena Vista itself makes a very cosy winter retreat. With radiators in all the main rooms, and even an electric wall heater in the bathroom, you can be sure you will not get chilly on even the coldest of winter nights. Best of all, there is a large wood-burner in the feature fireplace in the dining room, making a great dining atmosphere or a place to spend your evenings stoking the fire whilst reading a book.
